1. Keep Yourself Hydrated
Around 60 percent of our bodies are made up of water. This includes the little jelly-like discs between the vertebrae. When the body becomes dehydrated, its stores of water are depleted. This can divert water from the spine to other organs, as well as leaving dehydrated back muscles achy and stiff. Be sure to drink eight glass of water each day and eat fruits and veggies high in water content.
